iolo technologies Named One of Top 30 Places to Work in Los Angeles

For the second year in a row, award highlights culture of success, creativity, and entrepreneurial spirit

LOS ANGELES, CA – August 17, 2010 – iolo technologies has been once again named one of the Best Places to Work in LA by the Los Angeles Business Journal. The award marks the second time iolo placed among the top organizations from more than 10,000 companies operating in Los Angeles County, and complements its recent recognition as the fastest-growing U.S. company for two years in a row by the American Business Awards. The distinction, based primarily on employee survey responses, placed iolo at #30 this year, 16 spots higher than last year – the third most significant jump among all the honorees on the list.

For the second year, iolo was praised for achieving great successes over its 12 years in business while maintaining a very entrepreneurial and collegial environment. As the Los Angeles Business Journal describes in its special Aug 9 awards issue, “each honored company has its own special methods of elevating morale and team spirit to new heights, but one thing that is common among all honorees is a commitment to the concept that employees’ well-being directly affects a company’s well-being – in the eyes of the public, its business partners, customers and shareholders.” Similar to last year, the Los Angeles Business Journal highlighted the fact that iolo “has a relatively flat organization structure, where everyone is encouraged to speak with management and no suggestions or ideas are ignored.”

As the PC performance experts behind System Mechanic®, the #1 best-selling PC tune-up software in the U.S., Canada, U.K, France and Benelux countries, iolo presents unrivalled opportunities for career advancement, as well as continued learning, and provides an energetic and exciting professional culture. iolo offers a variety of flexible working arrangements and lifestyle and environmental perks, such as health spa membership and public transportation reimbursement. It also balances a challenging set of market objectives with company-wide social events and celebrations of major successes and milestones.

“iolo’s first-to-market technologies and product excellence have been recognized this year with a record number of prestigious awards from industry experts and technology media worldwide. Our continued double- and triple-digit revenue and employee growth, rapid international expansion and unmatched customer loyalty earned us American Business Awards’ recognition as the fastest-growing company in the U.S. for the second year in a row,” said Noah T. Rowles, iolo’s founder and CEO. “But being named one of the Best Places to Work in LA by our very own employees – also for the second year in a row – represents an even more important measurement of success. This award acknowledges our culture of innovation, creativity, focus and enthusiasm we’ve been striving to build at iolo, and recognizes the terrific talent and commitment of all our employees.”
